February 2008 sighting statistics

As you can see from the above graph this February we have seen five different cetacean species. Not bad for the low season! As expected the common dolphin (Delphinus delphis) is the most sighted, in 100% of the days we went out! The remaining three resident species were also sighted (bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), Risso's dolphin (Grampus griseus) and sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus)) and we also ecountered striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba) which is not to common for the winter months.
